GLENN: So I flip over and I'm watching Anderson, who I like, and Anderson becomes increasingly uncomfortable with Kathy Griffith. And Kathy Griffith, here I am, I'm minding my own business. And Kathy Griffith goes into a tirade about me being a drug addict Mormon. And I'm thinking to myself, well, how dare you call me a Mormon. I'm thinking to myself here it is a network for I worked for how long, two years, they actually stopped production on a show because I jokingly said, "O.J. Simpson, he practically cut the head off of two people." Had to shut it down. But they go back and they edit the show, except for the part where she calls me a drug addict. I thought, you've got to be kidding me.

STU: Well, I mean, as far as I know, you never did heroin.

GLENN: No, I never did heroin.

STU: But you are -- 

GLENN: Wild out of control with alcohol, did a little blow from here, you know, here and there.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Really, really, really regret it. I've got about four brain cells left.

STU: And only two of them work.

GLENN: Well, two of them, two of them are actually keeping me breathing. One is sketchy and the other one is just bouncing around trying to make words come out of my mouth.

STU: Yeah, and one of them's union. So it has to take a break every 20 minutes. But I think it's interesting to see that the approach of the comedy, you have to realize the comedy because you certainly had a past with substances.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: So what she did there, this joke that she did was she stated that you did heroin.

GLENN: Which I didn't.

STU: Which you didn't do but see, she took a drug that you didn't do and said you did it and then she took the name of your religion. That's quality comedy.

GLENN: It really is. Can you imagine if you just said, oh, yeah, that alcoholic Jew. Can you imagine that?

STU: Oh, no one would complain.

GLENN: Nobody would complain, no.

STU: If you inserted the word Muslim.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: There's no way anyone would complain, never.

GLENN: Of course they would run that. Of course they would run that. By the way, the other controversy that happened while I was on vacation is I see on -- I get up. The next day, the next day I'm on the Drudge Report -- I've got to stop reading the news and watching television while I'm on vacation -- and the Drudge Report has the Kathy Griffith calling me a heroin addict and then there's a story about Dr. Dobson pulling my book off of his website and, you know, all of this intrigue and everything else. You've got to be kidding me.

First of all, Dr. Dobson is the last one to be surprised at my religion. Dr. Dobson and I have worked together for a long time. We don't work on projects together or anything else. He has been on my program; I've been on his program. I know his faith has worked with my faith and everything else. I mean, it wasn't a surprise to anybody. Dr. Dobson does a lot of good in this country. He does a lot of good for a lot of people and I have respect for Dr. Dobson and I'm reading all of this stuff about how there's a giant spat between us and everything else. Just for the web cam viewers, I'll show you how bad it got. Yeah. This is the Christmas card I received from Dr. Dobson and his -- see, there's his family? Yeah.

STU: Well, Glenn, I mean, you are not going to -- what else is there to talk about other than you're a heroin addict and you are being pulled off websites? It's not like the Middle East is on fire.

GLENN: I know, God forbid we do that. And you know what? Can anyone in the media please get the Middle East thing right? This is Iran trying to spike oil prices and trying to collapse economies at the behest of not only Iran but also at the behest of Russia. This is what this is about. This is all about oil prices. This is all about countries when they are in collapse become extraordinarily dangerous. Hamas starts firing off rockets. Now, they are firing off rockets, and everybody at the UN is all very upset because now Israel has responded and it's not proportionate. It's not a proportionate response. I don't even understand the proportionate response thing. Do you? Since when is it a proportionate response? Didn't we burn down Dresden? Didn't we go in and burn the entire city in Germany down to the ground? I don't remember them doing that to Detroit. Of course, we did that ourself many years later. But they didn't do that to any of our cities. It's war, for the love of Pete. A proportionate response.

So when it -- let me just -- may I just use some common sense for a second? Because this has been bothering me. Proportionate response, would that be like us after 9/11 going in and flying two planes into the tallest buildings in Afghanistan? Would that have been -- and then, of course, we would have to drop another plane into, like, the tent where they planned all of the, you know, their war strategy? And then another one would just have to drop into a field. Would that have made everybody happy? I mean, for the love of Pete. It's war.

And there's another thing that's really been bothering me and that is can someone please retract the Jimmy Carter Nobel Peace Prize? Can someone please say, "You know what, Jim, we've got to take that back; that was a -- I don't know what we were thinking there, but there really hasn't been any peace there." And it says "Peace" on the prize. We can identify what it is because it says "Prize" and "Peace" on it. I don't think you get the prize for the peace when the peace didn't really happen. I mean, I hate to be nitpicky here but I mean, shouldn't there actually be peace in the Middle East for Carter to be eligible for the peace prize? Shouldn't it last more than 40 seconds? I mean, it's not like it's a new phenomena. Fairly two years after his marquis accomplishment and the peace accord between Egypt and Israel and the Egyptian president was assassinated by somebody who didn't like the peace process, I don't know if that's the way the peace process is supposed to end. Not really getting off to a great start. And now Israeli troops and the Palestinians are fighting like every ten minutes. It's not really a story anymore, is it? You look at it and -- maybe it's just me but every time I see the Palestinians and Hamas are launching rockets over into Israel and Israel is responding, I'm like, "Hmmm, I wonder if the Wheel of Fortune is on. I mean, this is not new news. Can we take his peace prize back from him?

Of course, if we do that, then we're going to have to take away the Al Gore peace prize because, you know, it's -- well, unless you can convince us that global cooling is what he was talking about when he was talking about climate change.

Did you see, by the way? Also on vacation I noticed a little story that this is the year with the least activity of sun spots. Isn't that weird? It's kind of like what the best astrophysicists on planet Earth have been saying for the last 10, 20 years: "Hey, by the way, this global warming thing, look at the sun. It has everything to do with the sun." What? That giant heater in the sky? What does that have to do with warming? Shut up, crazy man! Next thing you're going to be saying, they weren't building ovens in Germany. No, really.

Now here we are, it's snowing in Africa and there doesn't seem to be any sun spot activity. That's weird. So you don't want to start taking away peace prize Z from people because you've got to take Al Gore's and that will just be -- do you think if you're a Palestinian, you get up in the morning and you're like, "Oh, come on, man; what?" I feel actually really bad for the Palestinians. The Palestinians are being used and they are being used by Iran and they are being used -- it's not a coincidence that we have a new president in two weeks. It's not a coincidence. This guy is going to have to take a stand. So he's either got a massive enemy with Iran and the Middle East. "Oh, he's for -- look at him, for killing little babies over in the Gaza Strip." Is there anyone within the sound of my voice that's for killing babies? Well, that's a different story. Only the liberals... anyway, is there anybody that wants to see families ripped apart in war? Is there anybody? Is there a single Jew that wants to kill Palestinian families? Are there any sane Palestinian families that want to kill a bunch of Jews on a bus going to school? No, the answer is no. They're being used. People are pawns. And you know why this is happening? Because the brutal dictators, who we have gotten in bed with -- we just want Saudi Arabia? What? "Egypt, they're our friend. Here's another planeload of people that we can't torture. Will you do it for us?" We get into bed with all of these dictators, and these dictators need to blame something on somebody because if they don't have a bad guy, well, gee, then they have to answer -- you know what it is? You want to understand the Middle East, all you have to do is understand America. You understand our two parties.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
